What people are saying about The Village Gourmet:

Julie Z. says, "  On the catering menu for Village Gourmet it says "we can custom design & create any menu to fit your individual culinary preferences, budgets or dietary restrictions."  This is absolutely true and invaluable.  So many caterers are inflexible in their menus or preferred budgets.  Village Gourmet not only agreed to creating a custom menu for my wedding with seasonal, local, organic, and mostly vegetarian foods at an affordable price, but they were excited about it.  It shows how much they love food. I would absolutely recommend having them cater your event. Everything tasted great and was presented beautifully!"

Nancy W. says," The Village Gourmet homemade chicken salad with cranberries and pistachios on marbled bread (or other bread of your choice) is one of my lunchtime favorites! The soups are always good too. Their salad selections are unigue, flavorful, tasty and all homemade. I have also ordered and picked up lasagna (veggie and meat) with a wonderful salad when I was caught short on time for an impromptu dinner party. Everything I have tried is outstanding with fresh ingredients. The service is friendly too. Highly recommended."

Ivy P. says, "I love this place!  The Festival Rice Salad is to die for!!!!  I have craved it since I had it the first day.  The soups are great!  I love the fact that now you can order 1/2 sandwiches.  The few times I have had desserts they were yummy too.  The food is always very fresh and the service is good.  I've used them for catering and have also had very good results.  I would recommend Village Gourmet for lunch and catering without a doubt.  The freshness and quality of the food is worth the price.
